  1. Lamar Odom suing mother of his kids while Steve Nash divorces the mother of his

    Nov 14, 2010, 9:07 PM EDT

    If you’re a fan of celebrity gossip about NBA stars and their personal lives, this weekend was for you. Personally, I tend to think none of this stuff matters and the mere breaching of conversation on the topics is entering into an uncomfortable level of judgment in matters we hardly have any facts on. Illegal…

  2. Kevin Love has letdown after 31-31 game, only grabs 17 rebounds

    Nov 14, 2010, 8:45 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Well, hey, it was probably too much to ask for the youngster to keep it up. Two days after making himself a part of NBA history with 31 points and 31 rebounds, Kevin Love came crashing back to Earth for the Minnesota Timberwolves, only scoring 22 points and 17 rebounds in a 111-105 loss to…

  3. Dwight Howard still on the fence about extension

    Nov 14, 2010, 8:14 PM EDT

    howardface

    With all the movings and goings on in free agency, every team has had concerns about their star moving on. The Magic are trying to get ahead of that speeding train by locking up Dwight Howard to a longterm extension. In years past, the only question about stars re-signing was if the team was willing…

  4. Stan Van Gundy promises to try and do something he will inevitably not do

    Nov 14, 2010, 2:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    With his team reeling after consecutive losses and trying to find their way back to dominance, Stan Van Gundy got desperate and turned to a measure of last resort. Not yelling. Before the Magic’s narrow 91-90 win over the New Jersey Nets, Stan Van Gundy told reporters that he planned on trying to ease off…

  5. Knicks doing due diligence, inquire about Steve Nash

    Nov 14, 2010, 12:15 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    It’s pretty predictable, really. Steve Nash’s best days were with Amar’e Stoudemire and Mike D’Antoni. Raymond Felton is a good point guard, but he’s not Steve Nash. Steve Nash may or may not be on the block if the Suns slip out of playoff contention. So the Knicks are getting in line good and early.…

  6. The Blazers, the Sixers, the Pistons, rebuilding and you

    Nov 14, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    iggy

    It sits there on your desk, staring at you. Just a big red button. It doesn’t implore you, it doesn’t call out to you, it’s just a button. But you can’t help but glance at it with the first few losses. Then more and more, you stare. Your mind is racing with what to do.…

  7. Brandon Roy leaves Blazers game, does not return

    Nov 14, 2010, 2:27 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    If the Portland Trail Blazers and Brandon Roy believe in signs, the universe has not exactly been warm and fuzzy towards them in the past 24 hours. A day after word came out that Roy would never really be the same player due to his cartilage being completely gone in both knees, Roy was forced…

  8. Will the Hornets ever lose again?

    Nov 14, 2010, 12:18 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    Before you start to freak out, I’m kidding with that headline. Let’s not bust out the 72-10 tracker yet. Though, I guess, if we started one for the 6-4 Miami Heat we have every right to kickstart one for the Hornets, who improved to 8-0 Saturday night with a 107-87 victory over the Blazers, or…

  9. John Wall Sprains Foot

    Nov 13, 2010, 11:13 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Chicago Bulls

    A Rookie of the Year candidate may have a little problem. In the third quarter of Washington’s game against the Bulls, John Wall left the game with a foot injury. It’s been diagnosed as a sprained foot, via Michael Lee. Wall had 13 and 5 when he left the contest after it bothering him for…

  10. NBA scouting director takes a ride for charity

    Nov 13, 2010, 7:32 PM EDT

    It’s easy to get wrapped up in the business of basketball. Basketball is a full-time job, and due to the extreme pressure and expectations, people can lose sight of the rest of the world. It’s good to see that a prominent member of the NBA front office if above that. Dave D’Allessandro of NJ.com reports…

  11. Say “So long” to Baron Davis for a while

    Nov 13, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Los Angeles Clippers

    Well, he was overweight to start with, then got hurt, then got benched, and now he’s just going to be absent for a while. The LA Times reports that Vinny Del Negro is keeping Baron Davis out until after Thanksgiving to rest his injured knee. The Clips are in a bad spot with Davis. It’s…

  12. Report: DeMarcus Cousins’ behavior is garnering offers, not caution

    Nov 13, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    So you’d think that getting fined by your team for clashing with coaches would be a bad thing. Turns out DeMarcus Cousins has really only improved his stock by being, you know, DeMarcus Cousins. After getting fined earlier this week for what Marc Stein described as a series of clashes leading to “tension” in the…

  13. Saturday Starting 5: Revel in the Great Point Guard Era

    Nov 13, 2010, 10:42 AM EDT

    dwillpaul

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

  14. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Lazy Sunday

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while you were burning Wayne Rooney in effigy…. Lakers 121 Blazers 96: I was going to give you a great big recap of this game. I was going to do slide shows and video and show the intricacies of this matchup. I was going to give you something really enjoyable to read.…

  15. Erick Dampier not nearly as much of a Rocket as we may have previously thought

    Nov 7, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    dampier

    There was talk, and then there was more talk, and it looked very much like Erick Dampier was going to be a Rocket. Even Jermaine Taylor was getting shoved out the door in a way that suggested he had his spot reserved for someone else. Certainly looks like the Rockets need some more size with…

  16. The tasty underside of the Rockets’ defense so far

    Nov 7, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets are 0-5, which is just bizarre. They’ve fought hard against good teams and been in positions to win, only to find new and inventive ways to lose. This is a team that many consider one of the most fun teams to watch, and a legitimate playoff contender. So what in Olajuwon’s name…

  17. Deron Williams decides to go ahead and kill the Clips on his schedule

    Nov 7, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/_rXD2AGob0c?fs=1&hl=en_US" height="205" width="320" /]

    The Clippers battled last night. They really did. Without Baron Davis (fatness), without Blake Griffin (fouled out), without Eric Gordon (injury), they still managed to tie the Jazz with 7 seconds to go in double overtime. Then, of course, Deron Williams decided he’d played enough minutes and would like to go home. Williams took the…

  18. Stan Van Gundy has a hard position on a wet spot

    Nov 7, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    I imagine having Stan Van Gundy yell a you must be one of the most uncomfortable situations you can find yourself in. The high-pitched, hoarse wail, the effusive finger-pointing, the incredulous glare, all of it must be pretty unpleasant to deal with after a long night. To that end, let’s hope the operations crew at…

  19. Weird but true: Murder suspect arrested in VIP section during Bobcats-Magic game

    Nov 7, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    twc

    There are a bunch of ways to take this one. Scary, funny, bizarre, and the story is all three. So we’re going to try and tread those three lines, carefully. Let’s say you’re a murder suspect. In fact, you’re on video in a confrontation with a man who was shot twice in the back in…

  20. LeBron James: Still not making friends

    Nov 7, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is already a polarizing figure. He was becoming one prior to “The Decision,” and then his little TV special pushed things to a different stratosphere. But it’s not just those big events, or his Game 5 meltdown, or not shaking hands with the Magic after the Cavs’ 2009 elimination, or Kobe Bryant fans’…

  21. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade alley-oop for fun and games

    Nov 7, 2010, 12:10 AM EDT

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/vEPUpl36J6Q?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Going to see a lot of this for the next, oh, five or six years. When you have multiple all-world athletes on your team, things like this are going to happen. Behold! The totally unnecessary but awesome looking alley-oop! Yeah, that’s pretty ridiculous. It’s also fairly indicative of the Heat and their attitude. Magic’s Showtime…

  22. Stephen Jackson fined $50,000 for verbal abuse of an official

    Nov 6, 2010, 7:13 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    The NBA announced it has fined Stephen Jackson $50,000 for verbal abuse of game officials during the Bobcats loss to the Pistons Friday night. And now, a short selection of what we believe Jackson said, the same vein of Kevin Garnett’s explanation of what he said to Charlie Villanueva, inspired by Twitter: “Mr. Official, are…

  23. Rajon Rondo has plantar fasciitis. That’s bad.

    Nov 6, 2010, 4:40 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    There are worse words to hear regarding your starting All-Star point guard. “Torn ACL.” “Fractured tibia.” “Turned into Baron Davis.” But right up there is “plantar fasciitis,”  a foot condition that is a remarkably troublesome problem for NBA players. The condition is both sincerely painful to the point of distraction, yet not debilitating to keep…

  24. John Kuester’s safe! Yeah, we’re as surprised as you.

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    kuesterthumbsup

    So the Pistons won last night, which is a big deal for them, since it’s their first. I remember my first time. Wait, that’s not what we’re talking about. Anyway, they got off the early season snide against the Bobcats (of course) last night. The problem is they’re still 1 and 5 and have had…

  25. Blazers sign Sean Marks, so he’ll probably be injured soon

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    marks

    Greg Oden. Joel Przybilla. Jeff Pendergraph. Fabricio Oberto. The list of Portland bigs on the shelf just gets bigger by the day. And now, they’ll add another player and hope he doesn’t go down inside of a month. CBSSports.com reports that the Blazers will sign Sean Marks to a non-guaranteed contract for the veteran minimum…
